Princess Michael of Kent will open Zandra Rhodes' long-awaited Fashion & Textile Museum in Bermondsey Street this week.
Museum founder Zandra Rhodes, who lives in the distinctive pink warehouse conversion designed by Mexican Ricardo Legorreta, has invited 72 top fashion industry names to select their favourite dress. Lebanese designer Elie Saab chose the Halle Berry dress. Other star designers contributing include Donatella Versace, Domenico Dolce and Betty Jackson.
"I am thrilled and honoured that so many are taking part" says Zandra Rhodes.
Princess Michael, who Zandra Rhodes describes as "very stylish and not given enough credit for it", has agreed to be the museum's Patron.
